Who cares? It's a taxi ride. What next? You want me to sing the praises of an escalator or a particular public restroom? This is dumber than the incessant complaining about taxis.

I took a cab from NYNY to the airport once.

The driver went by the most direct route, didn't make small talk with me and didn't crash into anything on the way. From my perspective, it was an absolutely perfect cab ride.

4. Re: Short hauled !

I LOVE cabs,especially the "short hauling" ones...

I sleep under a duvet with a cab on and dream about them at night,and on my last visit to Las Vegas sat inside the Terminal taking numbers in my note book while my friends spent hours stupidly laying by the pool ,drinking and gambling on the evenings and missing out on the fun.

I also spend a lot of time writing poems as well as thinking about short hauling cabs,now my other half has left me for a long hauling cab driver...

This is my Fav and called " The Short Hauling Cab Driver and his fate for short hauling"

"There once was cab driver who short hauled

When his buddies found out he was well and truly mauled

He soon got the gist

When he went for a p***

Cos the long haulers removed his ba**s ! "

My life long ambition is to be a "Short Hauling " cab driver in Las Veags, as soon as I'm allowed out .

Well Taxi was a decent TV show, and Taxi Driver was a pretty good movie... I'll have to skip mentioning the cab driver that had trouble finding Mandalay Bay from Vdara... but he did charge the going rate rather than the lost man rate on the meter. Hopefully he found a new job he was more suited to.

Last year going from the airport to Bally's the cabbie took a few short cuts (including going the wrong way down an alley) and the fare was $12. Taxi authority has the average fare as $17. We gave him $20 and told him to keep the change. Great way to start the trip!
